How is the procedure done?
Dr. Ray performs the thread lift procedures, under topical anesthesia. The threadlift procedure may take around 30-60 minutes. So it can be done during lunch time and resume your daily activities afterwards.
The threads which are very similar to the suture threads, go under skin through tiny cannula and the cannula will be taken out and leave the threads in, under the skin and facial tissues.
The threads, over time, stimulate skin to build more collagen and that would increase volume and improve the sagginess. for more information on thread lift procedure, contact us.
What are the Threads?
There are different methods of performing the thread lift. It is a matter of the physician’s experience and technique. The threads are absorbable, so they would gradually dissolve in the tissues and collagen would be created.
There are different kinds of threads available, different sizes and design. Depending on your individual needs, Doctor Ray will determine the best type of thread to use for you, so submit your request for a consultation with Dr. Ray!
How long is the down time?
The down time for a thread lift is very short. After the procedure, there may be some bruises and swelling. But the swelling would subside within days and bruises will fade within a couple of weeks, if ever happen.
How about exercise and activities after Thread lift?
Regular daily activities are encouraged though strenuous activities and exercises would be, the best, avoided for 1-2 weeks. Dr. Ray would explain it to you during consultation about the post thread lift procedure care
Any scar after Thread Lift?
Because there are no incisions made with a thread lift, there will be no scarring on the skin.
We are pleased to be able to offer the Thread Lift to our patients at Elite Medical Aesthetics, Rocklin.
Are there any other types of thread lifts?
Yes! there are some other techniques available including Silhouette Lift. Although there are some similarities in the thread lift techniques but the main difference is that in our technique, while we improve the face structure and lift the face, there will be increase in skin collagen. Therefore the skin tightening would be more smooth and natural rather.
